Abstract: Despite of over forty years of research on over the world, the ideal grout for re-adhesion of delaminated wall paintings has not been invented. Along with the industry development, traditional and already historic additives such as casein have been replaced by synthetic resins. Additionally old type recipes created by practicing conservators have been forgotten and squeezed out by commercial, ready to use, injection grouts. Due to the ease of application process those grouts were quickly accepted by conservators, sometimes without running a detailed analysis of their effect on specific historic object. The aim of this article is a revision of historic and modern injection grouts prepared and used by conservators for re-adhesion of wall paintings based on lime. The authors would like to pay more attention on grouts used in Poland in years 1950 - 2010. The research will be more interesting due to geographic location and political and economic aspects. Poland is an example of a country that has been under influence of trends from East and West of Europe. Lack of appropriate resources on the market in the past resulted in motivation for many experiments.
